Xbox and 2K Games would like to get your input on a new community basketball court, with a chance to go to the All-Star Game in 2019 as a reward. As part of their 2K Foundations program, both companies have partnered up in a contest that will help a community get a freshly designed court in their neighborhood done by your design. You can learn more about the In The Paint contest by checking out this link, but the short version is that you enter a design for a chance to win All-Star tix and see your creation come to life in a neighborhood in dire need of an upgrade to their courts.
Back in September, 2K announced the establishment of 2K Foundations – a program dedicated to supporting underserved communities across the country by refurbishing basketball courts and promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programming for youth. Within its first year of operation, 2K Foundations, Microsoft, and Project Backboard have joined forces to renovate basketball courts and community learning centers in 12 U.S. cities including Cincinnati, Baltimore, Chicago, and Cleveland – with today’s court in Los Angeles being the latest. Microsoft is proud to partner with these incredible organizations to help outfit each location with new Xbox One S consoles and other equipment to help continue providing education to children in need.
While Xbox is grateful to be working with 2K Foundations and Project Backboard, we can’t do this alone! Starting today and ending December 14, we will be holding a contest to see who can create the best custom basketball court to be used in our next renovation.
